Author Notes:

This is delicious. This is our go to holiday cocktail for parties. I also make this as a gift to friends and clients every year and it has developed quite the following! It is a great gift served in glass jars or milk bottles and tied with a beautiful piece of ribbon. Milk punch can make anyone merry!

The cinnamon syrup can be made ahead and stored for up to a month in the fridge- I usually make a double batch and use leftover in lattes.
